FoodClearly our main objective at the Daegu Shooting Range was to test the weaponry (see below). But staying true to the Rockin' Daegu Restaurants format, we also stopped by their on-sight cafeteria. On the lower-level complex about midway along the courtyard is the 식당. It can be a cheap, quick location for a temporary ceasefire, or to accept the conditions of your surrender. Just pay the nice lady at the counter \6,000 and approach the firing....err I mean buffet line.
|The nice lady let me double up. Sorry folks, only me|
For those of you that have penetrated the outlying mountains of Chilgok, and have entered this massive complex that sprawls across a valley, and have heard the distant booms, bangs and screams; for those of you that have already experienced the carnage of the Daegu Shooting Range, go read something else. For those that haven't, prepare yourselves.
|I'd hate to face off with these fella's at high noon,|
even in smaller numbers.
Upon arrival, navigate yourself through the compound to the building on the furthest hill. (It's also the farthest hill, just so my fellow North Americans don't get confused and lost). Inside, grab a seat, a sheet and a pen. Identify your body, and then check off your weapons of choice. You can also give your squad a call-name, such as "The Apprentice Assassins" or "Killing Spree," though it's not required.
|When ready to massacre some pigeons, head up|
behind the sign-up building, up the stairs. Pass
all those professional multi-target-angle ranges
that you aren't good enough for (yet), and enter
the white "Tourism Shooting" building
at the very end.
If the smell of gunpowder makes you nauseous, there are a few girlier options. They are also far cheaper, so they're worth the shot. In the building closest to the entrance is the 스크린 사격 ("screen shooting") game, for \1,500 per person. Also in the sign-up/pistol building is an air rifle range. For \3,000 you can shoot 20 pellets at two small paper targets (10 pellets each). Just clip one to the pulley and send it to the distance of your choice by pressing either the 5m, 10m, 15m or "max" buttons. Feel free to recall it for a strategy readjustment.
|A bit more stable and responsive program than|
your usual arcade shooter, this competitive
showdown gives a decent bang for your buck.
|I could totally take out a few stationary|
eyeballs at 15 meters.
LocationFar far away, about 3km southwest of Chilgok's center. And for those who don't know, Chilgok is about 1,000km north of Daegu's center.
Tell a cab driver 대구 사격장 (Daegu sah-gyuhk-jang) while extending your thumb and index finger in a "bang bang" gesture (not directly at him). Then sit back and enjoy the long ride, maybe \17,000 and 25 minutes from Downtown.
But your best bet is to find a friend with a car. With a GPS just enter the address: 대구광역시 북구 금호동 40
|The aftermath of notable gun-toters.|
I feel safer knowing our mayor
(top left) can slay some cats.
.....Emphasis on "slay."
|A "battle simulator" course. We'll definitely have to|
revisit when this place is operational, and give an update.
